  10. shaved Parmigiano Reggiano for top of salad
  11. extra lemons for dressing

Instructions
  1. Roast your asparagus on a sheet pan drizzled with olive oil for maybe 5 or 10 minutes on 375° F just until the raw taste is gone. Cool them off and then slice them lengthwise.

  3. In a bowl mash up your goat cheese and loosen it up with 2 tablespoons of the lemon dressing.
  4. Gently toss and coat sliced asparagus into the mixture, adding salt and pepper to taste.
  5. On a large platter assemble the greens, peas, fava beans, radishes, zucchini ribbons all over ending with the goat cheese coated asparagus on top. Sprinkle the toasted nuts all around.
